Description Reviews Warranty Information


The WoodMaxx DC-1260 is a self-feeding gasoline engine powered wood chipper that features a large 12" x 6" infeed opening and can handle material up to 4" in diameter. Weighing in at 408 lbs. this drum style chipper is equipped with a Professional grade Briggs & Stratton XR2100 gasoline engine that boasts 13.5 HP and 21.00 ft./lbs. of torque. Optional electric start is also available as an upgrade. The material is fed into a sloped infeed bin and fed into the 10" diameter 53 lb. chipper drum that acts as a power feed assist system pulling the branches in at up to 50' per/min. Although the chipper weighs over 400 pounds it is perfectly balanced and can be easily moved to the work site by tipping it back and pushing it around with the included handles. A trailer tongue is also included for attaching to an ATV or utility vehicle for transport as well. Check out these features:

5 of 5 1260 wood chipper December 6, 2019
Reviewer: John Anderson from Fordland, MO United States  
Chipper was shipped to me in 10 days after ordering and arrived with only a small rub mark on paint... the chipper works perfect and could not be happier. I also ordered the wheel extender kit to keep it stable pulling over my hillside. I looked at a lot of chippers and found this to be the Best Buy for the money and the quality of this chipper is fantastic.

5 of 5 good design, good quality November 15, 2019
Reviewer: Chris from Central Texas  
I have 20 hrs on mine, in temps from 55F to 105F.  It starts and runs great every time.  It bogs down with a thick branch or a large quantity of thin branches and leaves, but if you can fit the material through the chute, this thing will chew it up.

Fitting angled branches down the chute is tough, and requires more lopping than I anticipated.  Cedars are good, since the wood is supple and the branches have narrow angles to fit through the chute.

It's reasonable to maneuver by hand on smooth ground (I'm 200 lbs, middle-aged).  Towing is trivial for my Ranger and it fits through tight spaces/trails, with good balance (I have the wide-set wheel kit).

Blade gap is important.  I didn't adjust mine when it arrived, and I had problems with the drum getting clogged and jamming.  After adjusting the gap, it feeds very well and doesn't bite off more than it can chew.

Packaging was a little wimpy.  The parts shifted around inside the crate and got some cosmetic damage.

5 of 5 DC-1260e with wheel extender kit October 9, 2019
Reviewer: Jim from STEVENS POINT, WI United States  
Easy online purchase, unit arrived 6 days after I placed the order. R+L Carriers delivered on schedule, and the driver even helped me dolly the crate to my garage. Assembly was straight forward and without issues. Did have some paint and label scuffs, and Woodmaxx sent out the needed touch-up items.  The chipper works as advertised, it is a heavy duty machine that chews through 4" material with ease. I expect to get many years of service from this well made unit.

5 of 5 Glad We Found WoodMaxx September 18, 2019
Reviewer: Robert Morin from Milan, NH United States  
Very satisfied with this equipment.  Customer service prompt and courteous.  Delivery on time.  Assembly reasonable.  Found we needed to order the extenders for stability when hauling off road.  Handles bigger wood without getting bogged down.  (Previous chipper was a TroyBilt Tomahawk Pro).  Added a swivel jack, making it easier to lower the stabilizer and to put on and remove from hitch.  If the tongue was two inches longer it would allow for full horizontal placement of the swivel jack when not in use.  Overall, this is a great machine.  We are more than pleased with it and  are happy that it was manufactured in the USA.

5 of 5 Dechiqueteuse DC-1260 September 18, 2019
Reviewer: Eric Brisson from Becancour, QC Canada  
J'ai recu la dechiqueteuse dans un delais de 48 heures apres l'expedition (delais de 10 jours ouvrables). L'emballage en bois etait en parfaite condition. Le montage a ete facile. Je n'ai pas eu a reajuster le couteaux. Le moteur est facile a demarrer grace a l'embrayage centrifuge. Le demarreur electrique est inutile a mon avis. Le moteur est beaucoup moins bruyant que sur mon ancienne dechiqueteuse. Elle est bien balancee sur ses roues et facile a deplacer. Apres 2 heures d'utilisation je suis entierement satisfait. Pour le prix paye je ne pense pas qu'il est possible de trouver mieux.
